Doubt it will work: Active lice lay their eggs at the scalp line.You will see some further out because the hair grows out with the incubating egg attached.You are bound to miss some. Soaking your hair in a pickling vinegar to loosen the attachment and combing the eggs out with a fine nit comb works well
